Example text

30 Juba II visited this Atlantic coast and perhaps got as far as the Canaries. He founded industrial settlements on the Purpurarlæ (the Purple Isles) on the site of Mogador to manufacture Getullian purple, highly esteemed in Rome. Salting bowls where the purple dye was prepared have been discovered on both Mogador and Lixus. The wealth of Juba’s kingdom, evident from the expansion of a city such as Volubilis, tempted Caligula to rob Ptolemy, Juba’s son, of his kingdom. Subsequently visited in an irregular way over the next two centuries, the island of Mogador became once more an active trading post in Severus’s time, and Byzantium again fostered some trade there.

We should not be too quick to celebrate the exploits of these ‘Kings of the Sea’ unreservedly, however, since the Vikings had had to take account of numerous constraints imposed upon them by conditions in which it was always difficult to navigate; and besides, they were not always successful. Viking trade routes The regularity of the relations established since the eleventh century remains extraordinary, not only between Norway, the Faeroes and Iceland, but also between Norway and Greenland, much further afield.
